  1. This reminds me of an Indonesian rendang! I guess the pressure cooker was to help make the beef strips tender and juicy?

  2. Thanks for the comments. Yes, Beef is tougher than lamb or goat meat. Pressure cooker softens the meat. You can also use veal (meat coming from young cattle) which is supposed to be tender.
